Music for a Cause 16 (MFAC16) is Singapore's First Social Cause Concert.
The event is held from 3-4 June 16 at *SCAPE (Playspace).
Canossaville Children's Home (CCH) is one of the five featured social causes at MFAC16. Founded in 1941, CCH offers residential care to girls aged between 4 years to 12 years who come from family situations which may put them at risk. The home's Student Care Centre offers before/after school care for primary school children, including those with hearing impairment, dyslexia and families needing financial assistance. CCH also uses promotional and preventive approaches to form a creative partnership and collaborate with parents and caregivers to provide children with emotional and psychological support. The Home is run under the guidance of the Canossian Daughters of Charity.
Music for a Cause 16 believes in the good work CCH is doing. Support CCH by donating an amount and make a difference to the lives of these children.

Formerly known as Canossaville Children's Home, the residential home was closed earlier this year to make way for an inclusive preschool and student care centre to cater to mainstream and special needs children, giving priority to the most needy. A Child Development Unit (CDU) comprising a team of speech therapists, education psychologists and social workers to meet the specialised needs of the children is also being set up, and is scheduled to be operational in 2018.
In preparation for our new role as Canossaville Children & Community Services, developments are ongoing. This includes the designing of a special curriculum to meet the unique needs of Canossaville, with a distinctive focus on Formation of the Heart, the key foundation of a Canossian education.
Canossaville Children & Community Services is an approved Institute of Public Character (IPC) and is authorised to receive tax-deductible donations.
